It's easy to forget when you stay at Swiss Cottage that there is a vibrant city just outside waiting for you. They are two minutes away from the underground (tube to the locals) so you can be in any of London's hotspots within minutes!

Horrific mix-up and robbery.

I booked to stay at this place, online. My booking was passed and it was only when I rang them up to check all was well that I discovered they had no room. They had then, without attempting to ask me and check, booked me into their sister hostel: Palmers lodge hillspring. I would only have been told otherwise on my arrivial, which happened to be in the early hours of the morning. Upon arrival they took 20 minutes at reception to give us our key, then there was already a poor woman asleep and startled on our entry to what turned out to be her room. After having to wait for a further hour they found us a room in some dark corner of the hostel. I was also charged the more expensive price of the hotel above, despite it being an inferior place quality and price-wise. We were refused a refund in the morning despite checking out early to find a new place to stay for the remainder of our trip. The staff were rude and not very helpful. Never again!
